Very impressive area for a nice walk anytime. The views are stunning and the river is nearby. Nice shops and if you have kids the play area is second to none.

This park is great for children (3 different adventure playgrounds for various ages), there is a restaurant/cafe which serves a variety of food and drinks. There is a shop which sells different memorabilia. Dogs can have long walks through miles and miles of green space and there is a small boatyard and boats moored waiting for the tide to turn....

Had a fantastic day at Wat Tyler Country Park, great facilities including large play area, coffee shop and lots of open spaces. Lots of information about the wildlife in the area. We went for Spooky Fest which was three very scary mazes (kids loved it) stayed and had a picnic and long walk around the Park.
